Allison grew up in the northern California Bay Area, before moving across the country to attend college in Maine. She graduated from Bowdoin College with a B.A. in Visual Arts and a minor in Biology. After spending some years living and working in New York and San Francisco, she went on to earn her J.D. from New York University School of Law, where she graduated cum laude.
